The Leap of Faith (Psychology of the Bible: Abraham and Kierkegaard)
Belief is not an agreement with a set of facts, but the willingness to act something out, to stake your life on something. We will continue our analysis of Abraham (Genesis 21-24), and discuss Soren Kierkegaard's "Fear and Trembling." Everyone is welcome to the conversation. To sacrifice now is to gain later, perhaps the greatest of human discoveries. What, then, should best be sacrificed? And what might be the greatest gain? There are few eternal questions more profound and difficult. The YouTube links below will help frame our conversation: Jordan Peterson on "The Great Sacrifice": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-yUP40gwht0&t=155s Soren Kierkegaard: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jkh2TXCHpNs&t=639s

    What we're about

    This is a place to speak freely.

    Particularly about: meaning, the hero's journey, psychology, the constraints of biology, how to be invited to play the most games, existentialism, what was going on with that dude Cain, the purpose of sacrifice, how to avoid making the breakfast from hell, the Pareto distribution, and obviously...beautifying your room because you 100% for sure already cleaned it.
